the dollar. concern about the strength of the euro overall could be a threat. undercurrent to the u.s., which looks like to be a negative one. >> the big macro, everything out of japan, not so great. but the united states banking story, i think, is as you mentioned, carl, is it a real u.s. economy, what is the read on it. people are doing better. and this is a section that was terrifically performing in the s&p last year. and you could argue, wait a second, it's run ahead. but it's not selling off today. i thought people thought it would sell off. we're not getting that kind of judgment. >> a lot of up moves on the back of goldman sachs earnings. take a look at the financials. [ bell ringing ] >> taking a look at the open here. no surprise. oh, look, apple is higher by 1.9% in today's session. helping the nasdaq in an up trend. cutting apple to set to perform. a lot of the reasons we heard before, but apple will have bottomed, either yesterday, or today. calling the bottom in shares of apple. remember, on the way up, in september, they're worried about the impending pop on apple. making the m
prices this week, tle say that really when we look at it in terms of euros, we look at extreme weakness in the gold market here, down about 1.5% so far this week. even with the strength we have seen in the euros. that lets you know there is still some weakness here in the gold market. we are seeing profit taking pretty much across the board in metals complex. but another factor that may be contributing to the fact that we are seeing some weakness in gold is that traders are favoring platinum particularly this week going into 2013. looking at the white industrial metals as the place to be in really helping to supply hopefully create a rally that will continue for the next several months. back to you. >> thanks, sharon. rick santelli is tracking at the cme. we see the yield curve on the 30-year can be how are they doing today, ricky? >> this goes to the point. everyone is concerned if you are thinking rates aren't going up because they have. but they haven't really gotten traction at critical levels. so you look at one-week chart of everything. last week we closed at 109 and a 10 and yes
, disappointing industrial production numbers in spain and the uk. but the euro is at a nine-month high this morning. we begin with the s&p, a five-year high. a lot riding on bank earnings. the report's not perfect. american express joining the list of financials that are cutting jobs. >>> best buy's troubles continue. they're not the only retailer under pressure this morning. jcpenney capping a bad week. >>> boeing under official view as a probe is taken on the plane. a cracked inshield and oil leak. >>> remember a cheaper iphone? a top apple executive said forget it. the company continues to focus on china. >>> we'll kick off with wells fargo, kicking off q4 results. the lending business came in a little bit lower than many analysts expecting. the numbers coming out after american express announced plans to cut 5,400 jobs and the s&p closed at fresh five-year highs. jim, it's been said, wfc, probably the most important report of the week. what kind of grade do we give it? >> the whisper was they weren't going to do this anyway. i don't know anyone would think they would -- people were
about? >> yeah. it was guilts. booms also going. the dollar, $1.33 verse you the euro and 88 on the yen. finally, gold was up significantly yesterday. it's falling back a little today, down about four points. >>> now time for the global markets report. ross westgate standing by in london. mr. westgate, how are you this morning? >> hey. we're good. thanks very much. as you just saw joe point out, softer here. we have bounced off the session low a short while ago. and the german economics ministry talking about the forecasts for germany, as well. just helping us bounce off that primarily, saying, yes, we've had a weak fourth quarter. will be weak at the beginning of the year. they're expecting a much stronger rebound toward the end of 2013. so the footse 100 was down .5, currently down .3. down .3 for the xetera dax, down .1 as is the french market, ibex down .3%. the euro/dollar, we had an interview with ewald nowotny, the austrian central bank governor. member of the ecb governing council, as well. you see the spike -- we had the session chart, what i was looking for. you would have see
. quick check of currencies, the euro/dollar the focus of a debate this morning on "worldwide exchange." a lot of people saying not so fast if you think that the rising dollar in tandem with rising risk is going to be a theme of the year. today we're seeing the euro/dollar give up .1% to 1. 1.3069. and the dollar/yen after reports out of japan saying there will be coordination between the bank of japan and fiscal authorities to try and get to the 2% inflation target. nothing too concrete. again, the proof will be in the poudre figure i can use a -- in the pudding if i can use a popular phrase this side of the bond. back to you. >> kelly services. i like that -- talent. talent, kelly. >> talent at work. >> talent at work. thanks. >>> coming up, the nation's biggest banks preparing to post quarterly results in the coming days. the inside line next. >>> first as we head to break, a look at yesterday's winners and losers. at 1:45, the a >>> that's hard. >> you stink. the wing and a fractured beak.o surgery was successful, but he will be in a cast until it is fully healed, possibly several
of the euro and to some degree make monetary policy tighter over here. we can quickly look at the bond space. italy did go to auction as we continue to see reasonable demand for peripheral debt. the paper is selling off a little bit, but still 4.17%. investors showed up to bid on the two-year zero coupon and the five-year inflankz flagz linked bond. italy and spain continue to front load. forex, though, telling you more of this story, which is that interestingly fluff, we're seeing kind of a risk off attitu attitude. the same has been the case for loony, which now people are starting to talk about in parity with the u.s. dollar. the dollar/yen, down about 0.3% to 90.62. the euro/dollar, 1.3446. so even though it's difficult, the u.s. dollar, guys, has been performing a little better over the last couple of weeks helped by renewed growth prospects. it's one reason why a lot of people are focused on the see kweter, that chatter over the weekend about it happening could put more pressure on the greenback. back to you guys. >> kelly, thanks so much. next time, you should fly over. >> what happen
. >> thank you very much. what will it mean for the euro if the ecb cuts interest rates at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning? good morning. positioning for a cut? >> i'm positioning short. but i don't think they're going to cut this time around. there's so many reasons for the ecb to want to cut rates. i think we're looking at an actual cut three months out. german economic data has been pretty weak. i feel like that the position for euro wants to go to the downside. we saw poor german data, obviously the core of the european union. and the reason the ecb hasn't let the euro go. i think they're going to prep the markets next time for a cut. >> what are your levels? >> well, 131.20 was interesting. a level we tried to break through all fall. we finally got above it. now the market in the technicals should be support. it didn't hold the support. you want to go short the euro. >> are you a dollar bull overall? are you getting behind other trades on the basis that the greenback could go higher, higher interest rates in america? >> absolutely, simon. the dollar has this underlying bid ever since the fed
rose to 11.18% in november. that is a euro area high. if you move forward into decent, you can see the aumt of prices. they're prizing in some easing from the central bank down the road. quick look at what is happening at the bond curve. 5.1, just under 5.1%. the spanish treasury outlining the funds you will need for 2013. you can expect they're going to take as many advantage of these conditions as possible. italy, 4.3% on the ten-year. the gilt yield, above 2%. we will explore what's happening with growth going forward. slipping over now to currencies, here is what we've seen some interesting moves. may not look like much this morning. the euro/dollar is roughly flat. but the dollar/yen moving down by about .3%. it was really actually some support from the euro that came from comments out of japan. japan will be investing, bonds buying in the esm. that is an order to indicate some level of support for the eurozone project. but it also works to help, yes, weaken the yen. on that note, back over to you. >> it's always about the yen. kelly evans in london. the can. thank you. >> we'
's a couple of things. he said the victory lap. he said we relaunched the euro in 2012. a lot of talk with chris at this teen legarde in europe today. 2015, talking about this growth in the back half. i think draghi's intentions today were not to mess things up. the general feeling here is that what the ecb has done with the current situation, perhaps created the underlying conditions for growth. >> i hosted a dinner with christine legarde last night. one of the things that came up mario draghi said this morning that maybe we have good fall back into a problem again. >> well, that's a good question. but what we're hearing is this new buzz phrase out of davos, which is gsp. >> what is that? >> global stability put. i think larry summers may have been the one to coin this phrase. i heard it this morning when i met with a bunch of central bankers at a breakfast this morning. this phrase keeps coming up. the idea you have japan, you have the european central bank and you now have the fed obviously full throttle on monetary policy, underpinning and, you know, we meet here now in davos, the
look at the euro versus the dollars, wow, euro is screaming today. you look at the euro/yen, that's screaming as well. the dollar/yen is screaming as well. so the dynamic of the yen continuing to be under pressure. will this be a huge move? many think, if you talk to some of the japanese officials, they're say it's just getting back to a reality after the end was pretty much decimated about a year ago with respect to too strong relative to the other currencies. no matter how you slice it, all that meats is where we are now and where we're going in the future. >> thank you we'll find out the latest movements in energy. sharon, take it over. >> it's all about algeria. a lot of traders are paying attention to the ongoing hostage situation at the gas field where islamist militants had attacked that facility and still holding some folks hostage there. we have learned from the algerian news agency that about 45 hostages, including some americans had escaped the complex, but still bp is confirming that the situation remains unresolved. it tellses it has confirmation that five of its empl
to the opening bell. we're watching also outside of equities a big move in the euro u.s. dollar up 1%, which is a huge move for the currency markets. we're also watching oil. oil also up by about a percent or so on the back of the very good china export data that came in overnight. >> nigerian barges out there with huge cargos as i'm trying to rationalize how is it that o oil -- we're paying so much for gasoline. >> mineral exploration company based in vancouver. owner and operator of fitness clubs in the northeast. up pretty much across the board. just jumping out at me, intel, hewlett-packard and dell still stringing together pretty nice gains. hugh let hewlett-packard up. very fascinating report out yesterday, we had tony on last night on fast talking about the sum of the parts analysis. if hp breaks up or just realized to its full potential under meg whitman, $29 a share is what he's pegging some of the parts analysis at. >> when you pronounce something dead, whether sprint versus verizon and at&t versus clearwire, what we discover is there's a resilience even to companies that we basica
auction where in their first big debt aukz of the year, they're 5.8 billion euros above their 5 billion target. here is what's happening across the curve in bond markets in europe. the spanish ten-year, 4.99%. in italy, 4.17%. the bund, meanwhile, about 1.5%. gilt just over 2%. the interesting point here, guys, is that part of the reason why this is we're waiting on the ecb's latest decision. they're not going to need to do much more if current market conditions prevail. this is a pretty good way for them to start. so that auction going well, spanish yields coming into euro. if i can give you a sense of what's happening in other markets, the euro is higher. european equities for the most part as you're looking there are mixed to flat. but here is a look at what's been grabbing our attention. up .3% to 1.31. that i just want to bring your attention to. the all of points down there, you're looking at the dollar/yen. that's the other major story that we continue to follow. 88 was the level breached in trade today as the yen continues to weaken by the dollar by .is 3%. we'll wait to see if
the race to the bottom in the currency markets. the euro is at an 11-month high against the dollar and the yen is scheduled to move lower if the bank of japan wants its way, and a lot of people are saying that could benefit gold in a big way which is starting to move higher again. what do you make of the currency wars going on right now? >> i think they are going to heat up and the central players where it heats up will be between germans and the japanese over exports of cars, but i agree with you, and i also think that if we look at how they are going to develop in the near term, i would think that the trigger for that will be when the dollar/yen, for example, gets above 90 and the euro/yen significant levels, and real quickly i've had a lot of e-mails about problems with our bills, but not the ones that you think. t-bills. at the end of 2011 the last time we had a debt ceiling issue we saw bill rates for four week bills and three-month bills start to move up. today we had a one-month bill auction, trading on at five basis points and the auction went off at 9.5 basis points and ma
. good morning. >>> becky, good morning. i wanted to show what's happening across the euro stock 600. a generally quiet session. we're down .3% so far in trade this morning. that might have more to do with something happening here at the bottom of the index. the absolute dogs in the europe stock 600 this morning are the oil services. we can show you what's happening. look at the saipem shares once we get through the borses. saipem shares down in the range of 35%. this comes after they took a couple of hours to open this morning. let me show what's happening. 35% for this company. it's europe's biggest oil services provider by market cap. last night came out and warned about the profit outlook it's seeing for 2013. now itself's looking at revenues -- sorry, of earnings of 750 million euro, down from 1.7 billion that the market was expected. this is based on review of contracts based mainly in the leaf, nigeria and -- the middle east, nigeria and algeria. order backlogs, more worry about that. delay of major contract. bottom line, this company comes out in barclay's, for example, calli

yet. >> all right, rebecca, i have two for you. number one is that i'm reading that the euro crisis this year is going to go on the back burner even though nothing's been settled. it just seems like people aren't as concerned about it. so, i guess that explains the euro's move. and then, this news out of japan that kelly's all -- talks about all the time. >> she's teed up on. >> she's very teed up on that. and reading some of the stuff that abe is getting accomplished, it is different. i mean they're going to do -- they're going to -- >> they're going to out-fed the fed. >> exactly. and you know, they haven't had -- do you remember the last time they've had 2% inflation? >> twice in the last two decades. briefly. one on the back of a tax increase. >> just really brief. >> they've flirted with 2% and that's come back -- >> you think they can orchestrate that? >> i'm dubious for now. but if you have a better u.s., a quiet europe, a better china, there's more hope relatively speaking that you could get enough global momentum, because japan at the end of the day, still is a very open ec
the euro dollar, but it will cap at 35, so if you want to get a move there, go ahead. >> rebecca? >> stay with the momentum as well, with but as we get closer to the debt ceiling and the sequestration and everything else that washington brings, start to book some profit. >> that is going to do it for us here at5:30 p.m. "mad money" is up next. >> i'm jim cramer, welcome to my world. you need to get in the game. stearns are going to go out of business, and he's nuts, they are nuts, they know nothing. i always like to say there is a bull market somewhere.

whose printing press is faster. breached 120 on the euro, a big deal. breached 90 on the dollar/yen so the japanese are definitely devaluing their currency, but to be fair, it was just last year that the dollar reached a record low on the end, so if you take a wide enough view, you know, the japanese aren't mistaken, say, and they are just trying to price it more accurately. the problem is once this machine gets going of printing and weakening, how does it ever stop? >> yeah. how much of this rally lately that we've been talking about here has been fundamental and how much is just the greasing by the fed, do you think? >> well, look, i think the liquidity backdrop is the ultimate context where all the rest is going on. we've had bad enough economic scares with this much or almost this much central bank liquidity where the market had no trouble not going up, so i don't think it can be explained by one thing or another. talking about five-year highs, since april 2nd of next year up less than 5%, not necessarily as if we've torn our way to some massive runaway gains. i feel like we're jus

today when alcoa reports after the closing bell and unemployment in the euro area hit a record 11.8%. red alert. the united states could default on its debt in five weeks in congress doesn't raise the debt kree ceiling. half a month earlier than expected. america could be in default as early as february 15th and almost certainly before march 1st. despite extraordinary measures taken by the treasury department to delay that from happening. on that day, the luu.s. will ha $9 billion coming in to the treasury's coffers. $52 billion going out. committed spending, including social security checks, paying f active duty military. that's what they are fighting in washington. how to cut that spending. >> that math does not add up. it cannot work. >>> so it wasn't exactly point/counter point. because piers morgan didn't say much when he sat down with alex jones, the guy who created this petition to have piers deported because is he an outspoken advocate of guns and gun control. jones went completely into rant mode last night. here is what he said. >> i'm here to tell you, 1776 will commence
talking about for weeks and it's been a home run, the euro/yen. we're not at the best levels of the day, but it is a friday. at least on trading floors, fridays have something in common. usually a little evening up with the markets. maybe look for some of these currency trends to run out of gas at least on a day trading basis. >> thank you, rick. don't forget the lift on china, gdp. sharon? >> the gainer here, leading the gains in the commodity sector based on that data out of china on growth industrial production, also keep your eye on what is happening in terms of the precious metals. we're looking at gold prices that have dipped a little bit here. not able to meet that resistance at the moving average. but silver continues to take off here. silver is actually the gainer for the week. the biggest gainer in the commodities complex for the week. we're looking at silver, actually silver coins running out of the u.s. there's so much investor demand for them. that's the story a lot of traders are talking about this morning. we're also keeping an eye on the wti oil price after it hit a four
-fledged member. using the euro and everything else. i guess it makes it less likely that they'll adopt a common currency. if they're thinking about leaving the union. >> absolutely. no, there's a widespread sense of relief that britain isn't more closely tied in. if you leak at the performance of the economy, the fact britain has its own central bank, it can pursue monetary policies or policies appropriate for britain and not have to worry about other member states certainly is being taken as a sign of relief. and there's very little sentiment certainly for joining the euro now. although i will say the bank of england numbers fight they're not happy with how strong sterling is. they think currency should be weaker and it could help performance going forward. echoing the currency that we're starting to hear this year. >> no talk about becoming the 51st state which they probably have wanted to do for a while given how we excelled after we broke off. they could come back into the fold, perhaps joining the u.s. and adopt the dollar if they really wanted some -- any talk of that at this point? would
. will you be afraid it could be much worse, euro crisis or debt ceiling or china hard landing, would it really spook you to the point that you get more nervous. nobody's bearish about earnings right now. they aren't. people think it's a -- the numbers are too high and they'll slowly come down, but they're not worried about a recession like they were in the fall, summer and fall of 2011. look, i think the earnings numbers will come down. if the multiple expands, it will be because people believe the policy will be there forever. if you're me, you're worried a little bit more about the fed balance sheet and the fact that it obviously robs from the future to do this unconventional policy. i don't really want to gamble that is a great long-term strategy. >> we've got to wrap up. i give you a lot of credit. you work for a firm that's got a year's retail platform and probably benefits from people buying stocks. do you ever get pressure from management at all? >> never at all. to be honest, i work at a firm with a bunch of great people. my job is to make people think. when you have a framew
.s. dollar. but you can see right now, the dollar is down against the euro, which is back up at 1.3361. the dollar is up against the yen, 89.31. and gold prices this morning have gained a little bit of ground. up $7.70 to $1,668730. right now it's time for the global markets report. let's get over to kelly evans would is standing by in london. >> kelly, good morning. becky, good morning. i heard joe's comment about my hair. i will get back to that later, but i will say it was snowing earlier. it's beautiful. but that's not responsible for any notable change in look. just take a quick look at what's been happening wind me in europe. we're in the green for the most part behind bigger than expected industrial production. i wanted to show smu stocks because it's merger news monday. you guys have briefly mentioned a couple of these. down there, you can see swatch is up 3.8% after saying it's going to buy the julie business harry winston. we saw harry winston at the golden globes last night or at least you guys did. i certainly wasn't up. generali,'s new ceo looking to shed capital shar
're talking about the euro currency versus the greenback. jim, back to you. >> great, rick, thank you. new shift in platinum and gold prices. a lot going on with gold. let's go to sharon epperson at the nymex. >> jim, we have not seen this since this spring. platinum prices now being more expensive than gold. we're looking at platinum rose above 1690 an ounce this morning. gold prices right around 1677 an ounce. we haven't seen this in ten months' time. but we have been telling you since the start of the year, that this is the year for platinum. that the supply issue is facing that market. the fundamental issues, a big reason analysts are looking for platinum to outperform gold this year. we are hearing from anglo american platinum in south africa. of course, the largest producer of lat numb in the world, saying it is going to close several of its mines in south africa and wants to return to profitability. it's worried about slow demand and rising costs. we're watching what's happening in the natural gas market, because natural gas reached the highest interday level so far this year on the
of folks that over the last couple of years said the euro zone wasn't going to make us, europe wouldn't be with us anymore, that clearly was overstated. it never was going todom pass. the united states had all sorts of issues in its own government. you didn't see double-dip recession in the u.s. think about before the u.s. election how many people said these companies are keeping trillions of dollars on the sidelines because they're worried about the u.s. how many people are keeping trillions of dollars on the sidelines because they're worried about uncertainty in china? china is more uncertain. two thirds of the world's growth comes from emerging markets. these are countries much more volatile. now the financial crisis finally in our rear-view mirror, we'll spend more time in there. >>eric: what the arab summer? arab spring, arab summer? >> we have a boom going on, offshore gas brazil and mexico. as a consequence, the down side in the middle east which is exploding, that will have less impact on the u.s. ironically the fact that it has less impact on the u.s. means the likelihood tha
of people killed by firearms is extraordinary compared to other nations. euroing we're i don't think we're a blood thirsty culture and we need to look at everything we can do to safe guard our people. >> i appreciate your honesty on this. let me quickly ask you, the "rolling stone" article kind of exploded on our show that morning it broke and led to a fairly quick departure. do you feel misunderstood about parts of those -- the repo reporting -- and is there anything you would change looking back? >> first, i would tell you, as a commander, i take responsibility for what happened. when i came back to offer my resignation to president obama, that's exactly what i told him, i take responsibility, because that's what commanders do, and move on. i think that the media controversy that arose around that, i actually believe that it may not be entirely accurate, but the commander in chief who i worked for was my commander in chief and still my commander in chief. i owe him not to put such things on his desk, not to have him face controversies. whether it's my fault or not, it's my responsibil
